Interesting architectural detail.

Typical Venetian-style loggia in front of city hall--reconstructed after damage from earthquake and WWII. Stop for a minute and look at it!

Nice building to look at as you pass by. Haven't been inside so can't comment on that. Lots of cafes/restaurants nearby.

Venetian architecture on Crete...beautiful old façade and interior near the harbor and old town...many photo ops for shutterbugs, take a break and enjoy a drink in a nearby taverna or coffee shop. The Loggia shouldn't be missed on your stroll through Heraklion.

The history of loss and rebuilding makes me glad that in the end, some of this magnificent public building was saved.

Nice old historical construction with many arcs; probily from the venetian time, and I think it's the City Hall, the municipality of Heraklion.

This elaborated building, close to the Morosini fountain, has a complex and reach architecture, similar to those built by Venice in many town in Veneto. It houses now City Hall and it is worth a visit.

the Loggia is located naturally on the main street of Heraklion and dates back to the Venetian times ; it is naturally worth taking a picture or two of it as it has a special archtecture,different from the Cretan culture ;
